Scout Tree Pick-Up

Scout Tree Pick-Up

Help support your local Scout group by getting them to pick up your tree on either December 29th or January 5th.

What is the Scouts Christmas Tree Pick-up?
After the holidays, Fredericton area Scout groups will come and pick up your Christmas tree and properly dispose of it for recycling. All we ask for in exchange is a donation (minimum $5) to help support our Scouts for the next year.

How does it work?
Simply go to ScoutTreePickup.ca and fill out the pick-up request form, or call 454-TREE. The night before the specified date just take your tree out to the curb and we’ll be by in the morning to pick it up!

How do I give my donation?
Most people leave their donation in an envelope attached to the tree or in their mailbox. If you’d like, we can come to your door. Please specify where we can find your donation in the signup form.

Yoho Clean-Up

Yoho Clean-Up

Building on our great clean-up afternoon from last year, I am hoping that I can count on you again to help with a general clean-up at Yoho after the Remembrance Day ceremonies.

Our main priorities will be kitchen cleaning, wood piling at the main lodge and Jensen, removal of the docks, moving picnic tables and assorted repairs and tidying-up.

We will aim to get started around 1pm on November 11th and finish up by 4:30.

I will lay in some cleaning supplies, but please bring buckets, rags, gloves, etc., if you have them.  If any one can bring along a chainsaw (or two), we can certainly put it to good use clearing out a number of downed or likely to be downed trees.

As with last year, everyone who attends can put their name into the hat for a draw for a free weekend stay.

Thanks in advance for your support.

Operation Mosquito – Bring a Friend Event

Operation Mosquito – Bring a Friend Event

On the evening of June 6, 2018 Rivorton will host an Area-wide Bring a Friend event at Killarney Lake from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.

Tentatively dubbed ‘Operation Mosquito’, the aim of this event is twofold:  First to provide a fun evening for our youth and their guests and secondly to showcase the fun and adventure of Scouting to anyone interested in finding out more about Scouts.

The event will be organized somewhat like an overnighter or operation snowball, in that we will have 10 – 12 activity stations set-up in the park and participants will be encourage to visit as many as they can in order to try their hand at a wide variety of fun activities.  However, there will be no cost and no competitive team aspect.

We are still working on the activity station line-up, but we are aiming to have a range of activities that will appeal to all age groups, including canoeing, crafts, scouting skill challenges, games, possibly a kub kar station and of course lots of hot chocolate, s’mores and cake!

The event will be open to the general public, who we are planning to invite through general advertising and by providing our scouting youth with Bring a Friend cards that they can use to invite their friends.  All attending youth will be accompanied by a responsible adult, which could be a scouter (who brings their section), a parent or a parent of a youth member, if the youth is attending as a Bring a Friend guest.

We are asking all scouters to support this event by:

  • Encouraging your youth to use the Bring a Friend card to invite someone to the event.
  • Bringing your youth and their Bring a Friend guests to the event.
  • Helping to organize and run an activity station.
  • Volunteering to help with the general organization and delivery of the event.

Please show your support by registering your Group/Section below, and describing the activity station you will host.

If you have questions or comments, please contact John Boyne.
